Hello! I suffer from severe muscle twitching, and it simply makes every second of my life unbearable. It's voluntary, I do it myself, and I can force myself not to do it, but then it will be unbearable: I feel rising anxiety in my mind and tension in my muscles and this makes me twitch again. I twitch my legs, gluteus, ear muscles and armpits. I took lots of medicines for two years but there was no sign of any change. I beg you to help me with some advices maybe, or your stories, and I wish someone told me that this can be cured! Thank you!

I'm 17 and about to graduate highschool, and i have been on Nexplaton for a year now. After I started getting mood swings from it a month ago my OBGYN decided it would be a good idea to put me on Sprintec (the pill) to counteract it.... but after two weeks on that I started getting severely depressed and started getting very bad anxiety I stopped right away when I started getting feeling I didn't want. Now fast forward to a month later I have awful anxiety, I can't control my thoughts making me feel crazy , I've been obsessing over something I know I'm not but it is just in my head and makes me want to crawl out of my skin, I dead every day now!! I'm hopefully getting this removed Monday and pray I can take control of my life again. If you guys have any similar experiences please share and give me tips to stop this !!
Hello, I am a 19 year old female who has been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 6 - I know, very uncommon to hear. I have been taking methotrexate for about 12 years now and I have always had signs of OCD throughout the years but it has become increasingly troublesome for me and has gotten in the way of my daily life and happiness. I do see a therapist but I don't feel as though I get the same support as I do on forums from others who experience similar issues as mine. I'm seeking a safe place to be able to talk to others who can relate.
I suspect I have OCD. I always wondered why I sweated uncontrollably. After learning of a long term obsession focused on my family, I researched hyperhydrosis, something my sister also suffers from for the same reasons. I was stunned to find a connection. I might be just as smart as I always thought. I'm pretty conviced I have been obsessed since I was sixteen years old, maybe eight, not sure. In any case, I am aware. Hello.
